Comments Thread For: Budler, Joyi To Receive Career High Purses For Clash
Hekkie Budler and Nkosinathi Joyi will earn the biggest purses ever paid to two SA strawweight boxers when they meet on June 15.
Promoter Rodney Berman revealed this in Johannesburg on Tuesday when some of the fighters on the Emperors Palace bill went through their paces at Colin Nathan's Hot Box gym.
Nathan said the bout against Joyi was the fight one Budler had dreamt about for years. "Hekkie is in the best shape of his career," said Nathan, who trains the IBO champion.
"He is doing everything possible to deliver the best performance of his career."
Joyi, who was regarded as the best SA boxer, pound for pound, before he lost his IBF title last year, was one of the boxers who did not attend the public workout on Tuesday.
He is an internationally respected fighter whom Ring Magazine at one stage ranked as No 1 strawweight in the world.
